CPSA 0027
First issued: March 12, 1976
First revision: January 22, 1988
Second revision: March 2, 1988
Third revision: March 10, 2015
1 Objectives of the Standards
The Standards are intended to describe proper quality for safety of the soft carrier for
infants/children and to provide necessary information for preventing users’ misuse, thereby
ensuring the protection against hazard and the security of life of the general consumers.
2 Scope
The Standards are applied to the carriers for holding infants/babies on the user’s body by carrying
them in arms or on the back (hereinafter referred to as “infant/baby carriers” or “carriers”).
The term “for infant/baby carriers” does not necessarily mean that it consists of a single belt or a
piece of cloth, but refers to a device for holding the infant/baby’s body with belt, cuff or others,
which is worn with shoulder belt and made primarily of textile materials.
Remark: Child Welfare Act defines those people less than one year old as “infant” and those
from one full year old to school attendance as “child”; the “infant/baby” who are subject of these
Standards is defined here by division shown in “classification by type” below.
3 Classification by Type
(1) The types of use of infant/baby carriers are listed below.
(i) Back carry:
An infant/baby is carried on the back of an adult wearer. This type of use
shall be applicable for the age range from the babyhood stage when an
infant/baby is able to hold up its head *1 (4 months*2) to 36 months old
(arbitrary age range).
(ii) Cradle carry:
An infant/baby is carried in front of an adult wearer with the infant/baby in
the lie-down position.
This type of use shall be applicable for the age range from immediately
after birth (0 months) to before a baby is able to sit up by him/herself (6
months old) (arbitrary age range).
In practice, however, for the infant/baby carriers without any protection
against possible hip joint dislocation*3, the applicable age range shall be
three months old or more.
(iii) Front carry:
An infant/baby is carried in front of an adult wearer with the infant/baby in
the vertical position. This type of use allows the infant/baby to face away
from or toward the adult wearer (vertical face-to-face carry).
This type of use shall be applicable for the age range from the babyhood
stage (4 months old) when an infant/baby is able to control its head, to 24
months old (arbitrary age range).
In practice, however, the carriers with a head support for vertical
face-to-face carry are to be applicable for an arbitrary age range from one
-1-
(iv) Side carry:
(2)
month old to 24 months old.
An infant/baby is carried vertically on the hipbone on either side of an
adult wearer. The infant/baby is held in place with the shoulder belt on
either shoulder of the adult wearer. This type of use shall be applicable for
the age range from when an infant/baby is able to sit up by him/herself (at
least 7 months old) to 36 months old. In practice, however, for the
infant/baby carriers with a back support, the applicable age range shall be
from the babyhood stage (4 months old).
The types of product of infant/baby carriers are listed below.
(i) Specific carry position type:
Refers to the infant/baby carriers designed for a specific
type of use, either back carrying, cradle carrying, front
carrying or side carrying.
(ii) Combined carry positions type:
Refers to the infant/baby carriers designed for use in any
combination of carry positions among back carry, cradle
carry, front carry, and side carry. The sling type is not
included here.
In addition to those listed above, special product forms are available as shown below. The
following product forms are available in specific carry position type and combined carry
positions type described above.
a)
Bag type:
This type has a bag-like structure on the outer side of the shoulder belt.
An infant/baby is held in this bag.
b)
Sling type:
The infant/baby appears to be sitting on or being wrapped in cloth. The
infant/baby is carried with the shoulder belt on either shoulder of the
adult wearer. This is used in the cradle, side or front carry position.
However, the front carry shall not include any position in which the
knees of the infant/baby are bent so far that the knees come in contact
with the stomach.
Remark *1: Although infants become able to hold their heads up at about three months after
birth at the earliest, they cannot hold their heads steady and control their heads
correctly until four months or older.
Remark *2: Application of carriers shall be based on the age on month; when indicating the
permissible youngest age as rough standard for use, it shall be labeled as “xx months
old or more”. In addition, the permissible lowest body weight may be labeled for
reference. For the maximally applicable range, however, both the age in month and
the body weight shall be labeled.
Remark
*3
: A protection against hip joint dislocation refers to the structure in which the
movement of infant legs is not restricted (legs are not held straight), including a wide
back support structure extending to the legs of infant/baby.
